  1. I think the best part of it will be the Slam Dunk contest — I just saw this preview of what Dwight Howard is cooking up, it’s insane:

    The one stunt he does, the mid-air, bounce-off-the-backboard, left-hand-right-hand dunk, that’s sick.

  2. Your preview was right, because Dwight Howard was insane last night. The superman dunk stole it for me (Though I hear a lot of people claim it wasn’t really a dunk).

    Whatever the case…the superman uniform, the anticipation, the take off from inside the free-throw line, and the above-the-rim throw-in was as good as it gets. I was staring in pure awe when the replay rolled back in slow mo.
